I love to tell stories. And there are a lot of stories out there that need to be or want to be told. My stories are fiction--mostly--and they are novellas, which means about 18,000 words. Short enough to read on a long lunch hour or at bedtime. You'll find excerpts on my blog site thewritestuff.live. 

Note:  What Have We Become made the Honorable Mention list in the Glimmer Train Press Fall Fiction Open putting it in the top 10% of the entries in this competition.  A greatly appreciated recognition.

Just signed a contract  with Living Springs Press for the publication of my story Now Will Be Forever in their upcoming book, Stories Through the Ages. Thanks, LSP. 

I'm a storyteller!



I love to write. I love to work with words because there's a certain magic in them. I'd love to turn my passion into a project for you.
